Some of Virginia’s finest writing appeared in The Living Museum, the Illinois State Museum publication that she initiated in 1939 and edited until her death in 1966. Month after month, she turned out nature essays of high quality. [John Halwas]
Articles from The Living Museum have been reprinted nationwide in periodicals, newspapers, and newsletters, and they continue to appear. Segments from several of her books have been reprinted in periodicals, and the chapter, “The Rainy Day,” from Land of the Snowshoe Hare was selected for inclusion in Our Natural World (1965) edited by Hal Borland.

With 326 issues of the Living Museum, here are a select few. We hope to have more online soon.
